IMPROMPTU for Flute, B Flat Clarinet and Harp was written to honour the Endymion ensemble on its thirtieth birthday. I wrote the piece without any preparation or advance planning, allowing the music itself to lead me and to dictate its form, hence the title. Although the process of composition was extemporaneous, the piece turns out to fall into a simple binary form, in which the first section is elaborated upon and slightly extended in the second. The flute and clarinet play mostly together, performing variants of the same material, often in close rhythmic parallel, while the harp has an independent role in addition to commenting and accompanying.

There is something quirkily arcadian about the instrumental palette; and yet while the clarinet and flute are constantly engaged in a twittering birdsong, the bright, manic ostinati that pervade the harp part keepthe whole thing from sounding a little too 'cute.'
